GRP Construction with Planing underwater profile, gelcoat finish
The Californian 34 LRC was built in California and was considerably ahead of its time as one of the first, modern planing "trawler" style yachts. The hull and topsides are full molded fiberglass with no wood structure. The decks are fiberglass with no teak. The well built, all fiberglass hull is designed for speed and stability and achieved an excellent reputation. This example was built by the designer's company, Marshall Boat Company. That company was purchased in 1982 by Wellcraft and in 1987 by Carver.
The present owner is an experienced boat builder employed at Christensen Yachts, a leading builder of very large yachts. In 2000 and 2001 he did a major renovation of the boat at a cost of over $60,000, removing all the engines, tanks and systems below deck. The engines were rebuilt, the fuel tanks replaced with new aluminum tanks as well as new water and holding tanks. Essentially all the mechanical systems on the boat were replaced or rebuilt at that time. The full size refrigertor/freezer was replaced and the decks painted last year. New carpets were installed this year. The boat is kept in covered moorage and is in outstanding condition inside and out. In essence, this is a much newer boat than its build date suggests.
